We love to treat our fans, so to celebrate our Nutcracker Means…” mini-site last month, we challenged our social media followers to show us what Nutcracker meant to them via a contest on Instagram—with the reward of an incredible weekend package here in San Francisco as a prize. The lucky winner was Kaitlyn Lucey, whose Instagram photo (below) won her:

  • A night’s stay at the St. Regis Hotel, San Francisco,
  • $250 to spend at Westfield San Francisco Centre,
  • Two tickets to the opening night of SF Ballet’s Giselle (at SF Ballet through February 2,) and
  • An exclusive backstage tour of the War Memorial Opera House!

We asked Kaitlyn to take us behind the scenes on her prize experience this weekend! Scroll down for the photos…

“I feel honored to have won the contest.  Between getting to enjoy Giselle and the backstage tour, staying at the St. Regis, and shopping, I felt really special!” says Kaitlyn. “This was a great experience, and will become a wonderful memory.”

"Our backstage tour was a real treat.  Now when I see the rest of the season I will have a good sense of what's going on behind the scenes."
